SAN ANTONIO- Three fake construction workers broke into a southeast side construction yard off Loop 410 and got away with thousands of dollars worth of pricy equipment. PM Construction employees say the trio spent less than 15 minutes inside the site after breaking in before 4 a.m. on June 4. The three were wearing neon safety vests and looked like employees while they were committing the theft. They were caught on camera and nearly caught red-handed.
"When an 18-wheeler drove by, right when they were stealing our things, one of the guys picked up some cones and was walking by, pretending like he worked for us. So, [he was] kinda trying to disguise himself," project manager Travis Allen said.
The three men targeted two storage containers, cut the locks and loaded up a flatbed F-350 with three saws, pipe cutters, compactors, a water pump and some saws. Employees said no one recognized the three involved in the crime.
Crime Stoppers is offering up to a $5,000 reward for information leading to the arrest of anyone involved in the crime. You can remain anonymous when calling 224-STOP (7867).
